Question

How to get Wordpress as landing page, after install of PhPBB #.1.x Forums?

I have followed tutorials here on many occasions, to install WordPress, PhPBB 3.1.x forums, etc.

I have just completed the install of PhPBB 3.1.x and find that it has become my landing page.

I orginally followed instructions from WordPress on modifying the htaccess file in order to make WordPress my landing page.

How do I restore WordPress as the landing page for my server/site.

What modifications to PhPBB 3.1.x and/or WordPress will be needed.

I fear that modifying the .htaccess file for WordPress alone will somehow make teh forum un-accessible

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

hey , If you’re really new in the field you can install InstaBuilder 2.0 on wordpress and build your pages with few clicks ( no coding needed) Here you can discover more about it : http://pharazone.com/reviews/instabuilder-2-0-the-ultimate-review-2017/

It sounds as though you installed WordPress and PHPBB in the same directory. This will most likely not work properly at all. You will need to install phpbb in a subdirectory rather than over Wordpress.
